While training for the remainder of @thePSLt20, I felt lower back pain & had to consult a doctor. Unfortunately I have been advised to rest and can no longer accompany my team @MultanSultans. I am heartbroken 💔 as I was practicing and training really hard. pic.twitter.com/OjaHD1w9cg

“We were training to play the rest of the sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League,” Afridi said. But when I go to practice, I feel pain in my lower back. The doctors advised me to rest.
